It's official! We have finished the Timeline of Elements poster. Thank you to all the schools who participated in making this project a reality.

Check back with us in June when we launch the companion website where you can download the poster, see each tile up close and explore the back story on more than 5,000 years of human discovery! 

The Timeline of Elements artwork reveal for all 118 tiles continues until mid-June. Follow us on Twitter at #TimelineofElements.
